Do all therapists use the line, “I’m not taking any new patients at this time.” When they don’t want to see someone?! I found someone who would be perfect and got that line.

I work in London and my employer is asking us to accept a -15% salary reduction. Cost of living is so high and I am tempted not to accept, though I’m concerned with team/partner perception if I don’t
